Synopsis: Want to see what our oranges look like next to some items you might relate to? Well, we can help you there!

Orange is the quintessential autumn color, so with pumpkins and falling leaves all around us, many customers this time of year want to get a funky new decal from Trading Phrases for Thanksgiving or Halloween (or just because!) in orange. But what shade to pick? What orange shade goes with my Sherwin Williams SW 6386 Napery den wall? What can possibly go with my Valspar AR815 Ticker Tape bathroom wall? Have no fear; Trading Phrases is here to clear up any color crises you may have!

Of course, if you have the time, getting our free color samples is the way to go. There is absolutely no cost to you and we send them out on a postcard six days a week. You can request color samples here, 24/7, 365 days a year by clicking HERE. This is really the perfect way to see the colors in person and really decide for yourself what looks best in your home! You can also request working samples on this form to test out your wall’s texture before you buy.

But what if you don’t have the time to request samples? What if you need the decal in an orange shade by the end of next week or ASAP? Have no fear again! That is what this blog post is for!

Trading Phrases has four orange shades, so let’s start with plain old Orange (34), our darkest of our “traditional oranges”. As you can see in the picture below with a very ripe pumpkin, Orange is a much deeper color than Light Orange, Flame Orange, or our Persimmon. However, it’s not quite as deep and reddish as our Orange Red (which is technically one of our reds, not an orange). Our Orange color is not a crayon orange, but deeper and more red than that. The pumpkin is somewhere between our Light Orange and Orange colors.

As a side note, our Light Orange (36) is the closest color to a crayon orange. Light Orange is very close to the typical orange shade you think of when you think of the color orange, pumpkins, and fall leaves. Unfortunately, we don’t have a photo illustrating something close to that color, but you can compare it to the very ripe pumpkin above to get a good idea of how the shade looks. It’s pretty close in color to the pumpkin.

Below, you can see some orange Post-It notes. As you can see, these aren’t close to any color in our orange range, but are much more yellow. If you want a color closer to this, I would check our yellow section. The orange Post-Its are actually much closer to our Golden Yellow color than any of our oranges.

Below, you can see a package of Clorox wipes. They have that vibrant orange color that is close to our Flame Orange (35). You can see the packaging of the wipes is lighter than our Light Orange and darker than our Persimmon. Our Orange is also way off. Flame Orange is closer to an orange highlighter color, nearing a neon shade.

In the next picture below, we have some mandarin oranges in a plastic snack cup. These are typically a paler orange, brighter and a bit darker than our Persimmon (391). The Flame Orange, Light Orange, and Orange aren’t even close to the color of the mandarin oranges, as you can see below. Persimmon is our lightest orange shade and is less vibrant and much less “orange” than the mandarin oranges; however, this is the closest color to them that we carry. It’s our most “drab” orange shade.

As you can see in the picture below, there are the mandarin oranges, post-it notes, and our Clorox wipes all together against our four most popular orange shades. This is so you can see how they compare all together!
